▢ 1 tablespoon olive oil
▢ 1 cup celery sliced
▢ 1 cup carrots sliced

Turn a 6QT Instant Pot onto saute. Cook beef, onion, and garlic until browned and no pink remains. Drain fat if there is more than 1 tablespoon or so. While beef is browning, prepare vegetables.
Add beef broth and scrape up any brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Add remaining ingredients.
Set instant pot to high pressure for 15 minutes. Once the instant pot has cooked for 15 minutes, allow it to naturally release for 10 minutes. Release remaining pressure.
Serve with parmesan cheese & parsley if desired.
